SUPL: Express Come From A Goal Down To Beat Police

Express FC registered a 2-1 victory against Police FC in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku on Tuesday.

The victory was the first of the kind in the league since Coach James Odoch took over as interim manager.

Four minutes into the game, Police’s custodian collided with George Ssenkaaba causing an injury that forced him off before he was replaced by Tom Ikara.

Eight minutes later, Tonny Mawejje placed Police in the driving seat after a beautiful strike into the roof of the net after he was set up by Juma Balinya.

At the stroke of the first half, Senkaaba levelled matters through a powerful strike off Sadiq Ssekyembe’s corner kick.

After recess, Charles Musiige moved on the pitch to replace Daniel Shabene in Express’s maiden change.

Eleven minutes into the second stanza, Ivan Mayanja’s effort hit the post before it hit George Kiryowa’s shoulder and bounced into the net to give Express the lead.

Erick Kambale remained with a keeper to beat but he squandered the chance after being run down by George Kiryowa.

As Police looked for a reply, Marvin Oshaba and Frank Kalanda replaced Muwada Mawejje and Tony Mawejje.

The result keeps Express in the sixth position with 36 points while Police are 10th with 24 points after 23 games played.

In their next fixtures, Express will travel to Njeru to play against SC Villa on Friday April 8 while Police host Onduparaka on Thursday.
